5.0 out of 5 stars Atari does it again. March 18, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Once again, Atari called in Code Mystics (Jeff Vavasour and Co.) and gave us arcade and 2600 games all emulated well (including vector games that really look like vector games) but, as an added surprise, they included Atari 400 Basic! With this collection and the first part, the memories can flood in. I remember when we first got the Atari. It was a magical time. We had Space Invaders (which is not available here because it is property of Square Enix, and Atari does not have the rights to the game) Starship, Casino, and A Game Of Concentration. Over the years, we acquired more games, and I used to play them
With friends every weekend. That is why this means so much to me, and many others who grew up back then. These are good memories to share. If you are younger, try these games and give them a chance. They will grow on you. Atari, you still have many classics, so keep it coming, and maybe bring us some Atari 400 versions of these games. I'll buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Atari 400 emulator in the palm of your hand July 1, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I absolutely love this one! I'm constantly playing Codebreaker. Especially the Atari 400 emulator. There are a lot of duds in the pack, but that's normal. Crystal Castle was a no go for me, due to the difficulty of moving diagonally with the control pad. Also, the light gun game features touch pad away from the game screen. Kind of missing the point of a shooting game, IMO.

Strangely enough, Asteroid does not feature teleportation? I know the arcade version doesn't have it, but the home computer version did have it, and I was disappointed that it didn't make the cut.

However, the Atari 400 emulator is faithful to the original. This is the real reason why I buy this. ROM Rev A, if the value peeked is correct. There is only one problem: Inability to properly save/load program. Yes, the LOAD/SAVE command work. However, the LIST"C"/ENTER"C" command does not work. It would hang the program. ENTER "C" yields Error 138-Device Time Out. Considering that ROM A has a bug that hogs variable names unless you clear it with NEW, it means that you will have to re-type your program occasionally. It doesn't save to Memory Card either. I believe it saves to a memory on the cart itself.

Until the emulator can properly use Cassette Device emulation or use Memory Card as Disk Drive emulation, I will refrain from giving it 5 stars.

It's still a blast though. I am happily programming the Atari 400 to the max, especially with old Atari books/magazine articles archived on the web.

PS: I'm using Nintendo DSi XL. I'm not about to type tiny keys on tiny screen!

3.0 out of 5 stars Another fair installment of old school Atari games. February 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
If you've played the old Atari games back in the day -- like I have -- then you should be familiar with the selection of 50 games that you will find here. However, just like in Vol. 1, not every game is good. Me, as well as some of you gaming purists, may appreciate seeing the "digital" instruction booklets, as well as the original graphic designs/artwork for the 8-track looking cartridges (I'm sure that some of you understand what an 8-track is, in music terms.). Unfortunately, I found it difficult to understand how to play certain titles, so I just whitewashed over a few of them. Still, I will rate each game as fairly as I can.

Asteroids Deluxe: 4 stars; Backgammon: 3 stars; Basic Programming: n/a; Blackjack: 3 stars; Black Widow: 5 stars; Brain Games: 2 stars.

Canyon Bomber: 3 stars; Casino: 3 stars; Circus Atari: 3 stars; Code Breaker: n/a; Combat: 2 stars; Combat Two: 1 star; Crystal Castles (Arcade Version): 5 stars; Crystal Castles (Atari Version): 3 stars.

Demons To Diamonds: 3 stars; Desert Falcon: 2 stars; Double Dunk: 1 star; Fatal Run: 3 stars; A Game Of Concentration: 3 stars; Golf: 2 stars.

Liberator: 4 stars; Major Havoc: 3 stars; Maze Craze: 3 stars; Millipede (Arcade Version): 5 stars; Millipede (Atari Version): 5 stars; Night Driver: 2 stars.

Radar Lock: 1 star; Red Baron: 1 star; Realsports Basketball: 1 star; Realsports Soccer: 1 star; Return To Haunted House: 1 star.

Secret Quest: 2 stars; Sentinel: 3 stars; Space War: 2 stars; Star Raiders: 2 stars; Steeplechase: 2 stars; Street Racer: 2 stars; Super Breakout (Arcade Version): 5 stars; Super Breakout (Atari Version): 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the "Mind Games" part. September 27, 2012
By G. M
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a 90's kid I had never played old Atari games before. I decided to buy this because I was very curious about Atari's old games and this seemed to be a good compilation of them, it also included a BASIC compiler (two actually) and that was a big plus since I love the DSiWare "Petit Computer" (an app where one can create BASIC programs on the 3DS/DSi. It's pretty fun, download it!).

Well, I have been playing the game for some days now and I decided it was time to review it.

Firstly, the game menu is... Well forget that, several other reviewers already wrote about that and stuff so I'll just skip all that...

The games really do feel old. I had no idea gaming was so complicated back then. The game is kind enough to tell you what each mode is about but reading the included manuals really helps to enjoy and appreciate these games.
It's pretty normal to find someone complaining online "I couldn't figure what to do. The game sucks.", but by reading the manuals I could get a lot fun from these oldies.

I may not be very good at the arcade games or the more action-oriented 2600 games, but these are some of my favorite games on the package, these alone make the whole thing worth my money:

#1-Brain Games: This one is pretty cool, my favorite of the bunch, it includes 5 games with several modes each, including 2 player support. The first game is a simon clone where you press the buttons to form the musical sequence. The second game is a variation of the first, but instead of showing you all the buttons it shows the numers on them. The third game starts by showing you 4 figures and then scrambles them, you need to press the numerical buttons to rearrange them in the original order.
